If this boy looks as maniacal to you as he does to me, it's only because he's so CRAZY about well-made pizza.
I've made a fair few pizzas in my thumb-sized kitchen in the last few months (below: an early attempt). I've decided that it's hard to go wrong with the toppings (maniac boy's choice: mushrooms, black olives, red onions, and goat cheese, along with the traditional mozzarella.) The sticking point for me as a pizza chef is the crust.
Does anyone reading this know Dewey's Pizza? If you're in Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, or St. Louis, you really should. It's the best EVER. And its crust is exquisite... so indescribably good that I can't even decide what words to put in Google alongside "recipe" and "pizza crust" and "good." Thin, but soft. Light and fluffy, with plenty of air pockets. Chewy and almost pastry-like. OH MY GOODNESS. I want to make it at home so badly but can't find a good recipe.
So... if you're reading this and think you might have the pizza dough recipe that I'm looking for, despite my inability to put words to my desire (or if you just want to share a good one) leave a comment, or email me. I may have to come up with some kind of reward for a truly amazing recipe...
